Last night was a night of decision for the State of Wisconsin. In 2010, Governor Scott Walker won by 6 percentage points in a climatic battle of economic sense over unions embellishments. Believing the gubenatiorial race to be in contest, media humdrum touted that this could be implicative of the November election. This quickly lost steam as the night dragged on.
Having won his recall now by 7 points, much of the media since settled to describe Govenor Walker's repeat victory over Tom Barret as to have just "survived." In my opinion, most would call it a "decisive defeat" at the least. Perhaps even use the term "landslide."
The Daily Show presented a genuinely entertaining spoof on the results.
